I'm using Roon to send files to the DX-5 DSD via USB. The sound is superb. Imagine access to nearly 700 albums at the click of a mouse!

I'm been running Roon bridge upstairs on my iMac for more than a month now. It sends files via UBS to an Ayre DX-5 DSD. The sound quality is excellent. In the process of ripping the rest of my discs, I been reevaluating some of my SACDs using the Ayre DX-5 DSD as a disc player. The sound is superb as I expected, and the depth of soundstage seems deeper than I remember with the C-5xeMP. Expect that it's black, I'm totally pleased with the used DX-5 DSD, both as a disc player and as a conduit for files from the computer. Not sure it's worth $500 and inconvenience to have Ayre change the case/chassis.

Default Display with USB input

The DX-5 DSD displays 96 kHz with USB from Roon bridge on my iMac, whereas the QX-5 Twenty displays either 44 or DSD with ethernet from Roon core on my Mac Mini. I realize USB can't transmit DSD, but why 96 kHz for everything?
